What's with all the fantasy politics shows all of a sudden?Overall Impression
While I do have so mild interest in where the fantasy politics are going (it looks a bit too black & white so far, but let's give it some time), the selling point here is Nike, who's a very engaging protagonist. She carries the show here, and has the shoulders for it. She's got agency (despite the premise), heart, and the bouts of selfishness and violence that round her out as a person. The show as a whole features some decent slapstick, although the occasional fourth-wall breaking feels a bit forced at times.
Still, there aren't many shows featuring such a good female protagonist. That alone makes me want to stick with it at least for a while.
Not that I mind, I love this stuff a whole darn lot. Especially when it's not taking itself too seriously. Nike is awesome, the lighthearted tone is fun, the art is nice. I think it's the first show I'm actually quite enthusiastic to see more of.
Seems the king will be an interesting guy too.
